HMD Global, announced its first earphones supported by ANC, it is the Nokia BH-805, True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones, however the company is lagging behind in that RichGo is Flipkart have been selling Nokia ANC headsets for months.
Either way, the Nokia BH-805 earphones can cancel the noise basically up to 25 dB, a result for which the company is satisfied and states “it is on par with commercial hearing protectors“.
The new noise canceling earphones are designed to deliver up to 20 hours of playback, and they also have a Ambient mode to be able to listen to ambient sounds – when necessary – with a touch; for the technical part instead they mount 13mm graphene audio driver said to offer “studio quality” sound.
The earphones are also equipped with gesture controls and support for Google Assistant, so as to allow users to use voice commands; the touch control area is present on the side and the LED indicator light in the front, while the microphone is present in the lower part.
More details and specifications on the Nokia BH-805
Nokia brand licensee HMD Global earlier this year led the Nokia Lite Earbuds TWS with up to 36 hours of battery life in two color options, and although the color options have remained the same, there have been improvements in battery life.
Each earphone – which I remind you are IPX5 rated and resistant to low pressure water and sweat – packs one 45 mAh battery which has been certified to deliver until five hours of playback, a duration that drops to four hours when the ANC is active, all of it with a full charge.
The charging case also, with a 400 mAh battery, brings the total battery life of the earphones up to 20 hours, a good + 4h compared to the previous model. Note that there are four status LEDs of the battery in the front and the door USB Type-C and the reset button at the bottom.
In terms of connectivity, the Nokia BH-805 includes a connection Bluetooth v5.0, a good compromise.
The price of the Nokia BH-805 was set at € 99.99 (₹ 8860, $ 118), at least according to GizmoChina reports, in fact although the earbuds are listed on Nokia’s global site as “Nokia Noise Canceling Earbuds” in Charcoal and Polar Sea colors, the Finnish brand is rumored to be currently selling the earphones. in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
Details on pricing in other countries and the availability of the Nokia BH-805 have yet to be revealed, so you’ll have to be patient a little longer.
In April, the Nokia Lite headsets were launched for 39 euros (Rs. 3,400) and initially debuted in Europe as well, so I suppose their availability will soon be wider.
In the package shipped by Nokia Mobile you will find the earphones, the charging case, the earphones of three different sizes (small, medium and large), a USB type C cable and the quick guide in a box made with 100% recyclable paper.
